On wednesday, Julian Wilson watched the final of the Quiksilver Pro, Gold Coast on a TV screen in an apartment at Reflections, Coolangatta. Tower two, actually. He stuck around long enough to see the man who’d dispatched him form the contest in the quarters, Joel Parkinson, being beaten by 11-time world champion Kelly Slater. Then, he jumped in a car and bolted north to his home on the Sunshine Coast. He was hoping to leave as early as possible to beat the rush of traffic, commuters from Brisbane heading back to Noosa for the weekend.
Oh, and there was swell. The low that’d been hovering not only out to sea, but also in the minds of all involved with the Quiksilver Pro, had landed. Jules knew Noosa would be firing and was itching to get home. While it didn’t quite rival Kirra in size, surfing at home, sleeping in your own bed and having a home cooked meal is better than anything else.
